Emerson Approves Alternative Refrigerants

June 29, 2009

ST. LOUIS - Emerson Climate Technologies has approved R-407A and R-407C refrigerants for Copeland Discus® compressors in medium- and low-temperature applications, per the approved operating ranges. Due to the phaseout of R-22, the supermarket refrigeration industry continues to evaluate alternative refrigerants. With this particular approval, the industry now has the option to use R-407A and R-407C refrigerants in OEM equipment.

“It is our goal at Emerson Climate Technologies to offer the industry the most up-to-date information on approved and suggested refrigerant options for various technologies and applications,” said Rajan Rajendran, director of applications engineering, Emerson Climate Technologies, Refrigeration Division. “R-407A and R-407C offer capacity, efficiency performance, and global warming potential comparable to R-22 and will provide a sound option for Copeland Discus compressors, complementing our existing R-404A products that are available for refrigeration applications.”

Detailed product information including performance, electrical, and mechanical data on each compressor and a complete list of compressors is available.
